YouTube streaming live sports

Posted in YouTube by Conner Flynn on January 20th, 2010

YouTube gets the rights to stream sports, but don’t get too excited just yet. That doesn’t include the NBA, NFL or anything else Western viewers really want to watch. It starts with Indian Premier League cricket… And I hear those crickets chirping.

Anyway, just because you don’t want to watch it, doesn’t mean that it’s a bad idea. That sport is huge in the Eastern hemisphere. YouTube will start broadcasting live matches in March of this year. The interesting thing is that if this is successful, it could bring more live streaming content.

Google to compete with iTunes, offer pay TV on YouTube?

Posted in YouTube by Conner Flynn on December 1st, 2009

Get ready for 1080p video on YouTubeWord is that Google is looking to get into the pay-per-episode TV business with YouTube and offer streaming content for purchase using a service that would compete with iTunes downloads. According to Peter Kafka of MediaMemo, several sources have indicated that YouTube wants to offer streaming TV episodes for a fee.

It would be similar to what Apple already offers: a $1.99 cost per episode. Apparently both sides are in early negotiations and they are “optimistic” that a deal can be reached.

Get ready for 1080p video on YouTube

Posted in YouTube by Conner Flynn on November 15th, 2009

Get ready for 1080p video on YouTubeWhen YouTube unveiled the ability to upload and stream 720p video last year, it started off a bit slow, which is to be expected, with only 1% of the uploaded videos taking advantage of it. But now that number is approaching 10%, so YouTube has announced that it will increase the maximum resolution of videos to 1080p.

Awesome news yes? The company is vowing to let users stream video that looks as good or better than the source quality. According to YouTube Director of Product Management Hunter Walk, the company is re-encoding all the 1080p videos that have been uploaded over the past year, and they’re about halfway through already.

YouTubeIf you ever wondered what most Internet users do while they are on the internet, the answer is watch video according to new research released today. That’s really no surprise considering that many TV networks now offer streaming programs and sites like YouTube are so popular.

YouTube, Google smoke online video competitors

Posted in News,YouTube by Nino Marchetti on November 30th, 2007

YouTube beats online competitors in video viewing trafficYouTube, that purveyor of all things online video, continues to grow in popularity, pulling Google right along with it. This is according to data released today from comScore, a measurer of Internet traffic trends.

comScore reported YouTube continues to lead the online video market through September 2007 with 28 percent market share. This in turn made Google as a collective whole the top U.S. video property with 2.6 billion videos viewed. It was trailed by Fox with a measly 387 million videos viewed and Yahoo with 381 million. Specific to YouTube, said comScore of the whole Google picture, was the note that nearly 70 million people viewed more than 2.5 billion videos. It seems like Google’s acquisition of YouTube was not that bad of an idea after all.

NBC pulls clips from YouTube, makes way for Hulu

Posted in Digital Video,NBC,YouTube by Darrin Olson on October 23rd, 2007

NBC pulls its video clips from YouTube to gear up for the launch of HuluGet ready for the launch of Hulu which is expected to take place as a private beta possibly as soon as next week. NBC, who is in a joint venture with Fox to create the online video download site today pulled its video clips from Google’s YouTube site and closed a channel in what was confirmed by an NBC spokesperson as a move to help the launch of Hulu, a new online video site.

Although the new online service doesn’t appear to be a video sharing site, it could be seen as a direct competition for YouTube and having NBC pull its content from YouTube only enforces that idea. However NBC insists that the move is not making a stance against Google, but only to lessen the competition when NBC’s own new video download site launches. According to a YouTube spokesperson, Google and YouTube were informed about the plans as early as Friday.

Google puts YouTube’s antipiracy system in beta

Posted in Google,News,YouTube by Darrin Olson on October 16th, 2007

Google testing out YouTube’s antipiracy system for videos called Video IdentificationToday Google has announced the beta launch of YouTube Video Identification, a new antipiracy tool that we heard about in July during a copyright infringement lawsuit with Viacom. The new system is a result of a number of angry video owners, Viacom being one of the angriest, complaining that YouTube was supporting users uploading and sharing illegally copied video content.

The new system will use a “fingerprinting” type of technology which provides a unique identification to each video. With Video Identification users will still be able to upload any videos they would like and have the instantly appear on the site as before, but once uploaded YouTube will then be comparing the uploaded content to legitimate videos provided by the owners. When matching videos are found the owner’s can choose to automatically have the video removed, promoted or in true Google form they can even take advantage of the uploaded content and monetize the video for copyright holders who chooses to license their videos.

Google to have Youtube antipiracy tool for videos out by SeptemberGoogle may have an antipiracy tool for the YouTube video sharing site as soon as September according to a statement Friday by an attorney for Google. During a hearing in the copyright infringement lawsuit filed by Viacom against Google last March a Google attorney stated that they are currently working on some type of video recognition technology.

The new technology should be able to create a unique identification on each video, similar to the uniqueness of a fingerprint, that owners of the videos can place on their media. In the event that anyone would upload a copyrighted video on to YouTube the site would be able to automatically recognize and remove it within minutes of its upload. According to the attorney’s statement to the judge Google hopes to have this technology in place this fall and could …
